Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

So with all my pumpkin related fall baking lately I've been cracking into a healthy number of cans of pumpkin puree.  And sometimes I have a bunch leftover.

So... if you have leftover pumpkin and a hungry little pooch running around your house, here's some tasty little dog treats you can whip up for your furry friend.

Clearly, this recipe is Cricket-approved.

There aren't any ingredients in these that you wouldn't eat so...confession time...I took a bite of one.  They smelled so good coming out of the oven....

Let's just say...your dog will like them.  You?  Maybe not so much.

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats
(adapted from allrecipes)

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon.  If dough is too thick to stir at the end, knead together with hands until combined.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into about a 1/2 inch thick layer.  Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter or biscuit cutter.  Use a fork to poke holes in each cookie.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake about 20-25 minutes or until firm.  Allow to cool before serving.


  1. Just made these for my dog Max's 4th birthday and he loves them!!! You're right-I don't love them as much :) Just found your blog this morning and I'm going to try your Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars next.

    1. Thanks Kristen! I'm glad that Max enjoyed the treats. Good luck with the apple pie bars...they're dangerously tasty.
